What Causes Knee Pain?
Knee pain can come from ligaments, muscles, or bones that comprise the knee joint. The knee is the main connection point between the hip and ankle, so it gets used often. Because there are many ligaments, muscles, and tendons around the knee, it is essential to identify the source of your pain. It may be due to a specific incident or general use over time.
The main job of the knee is to allow us to be stable when walking and standing. The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts when it comes to diagnosing and treating knee pain. We will help you improve your pain, regain mobility, and return to the activities that fulfill your life.
Common Symptoms of Knee Pain
- Pain in the front, back, or side of the knee
- Decreased strength secondary to pain
- Difficulty walking and standing due to pain
- Reduced range of motion of the knee
- Sharp pain with bending or extending the knee
How We Treat Knee Pain
The first step in treating your knee pain is identifying the type of injury that occurred and what areas have been affected. Your physical therapist can help address the underlying symptoms with exercise and manual therapy to help improve your symptoms. From there, we will address the mobility and strength surrounding your knee above and below the joint. This often comes from specific functional exercises designed to improve your body’s brain-muscle connection.
We use various techniques to reduce pain and inflammation. Modalities such as ice or heat therapy, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound may be used to manage pain and swelling. Massage and manual therapy techniques like joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization, and myofascial release can help to alleviate pain.
We understand that movement is essential for our patients, and knee pain can be hard to deal with. Every knee is different, so we want to ensure we are helping you treat all your specific needs.
How long will it take for me to get better?
Recovery from a knee-related injury can vary significantly based on the damaged tissue type. When you first meet with your physical therapist, they will better understand what tissue needs to be treated and how long it may take to reach your movement goals.
